Costa Rica launches plan to attract bird-watching tourists

Last week was the first time in years that I didn't send out a Vine ... and it was very heartwarming to hear from so many of you who missed it. I want to thank our amazing Computer Fixer Dude, Ivan Herrera, for making my computer sing again and keeping me sane!

There's a meeting (in Spanish) in Costa Ballena today (Wednesday, June 15th) regarding the upsurge of Dengue & other mosquito borne diseases that you do not want to get! Please take precautions around your property and your person to avoid this at all costs!
